organizations that have distorted islam, or falsely used the banner of islam to engage in their destructive acts. and we've got to be clear about that. we've got to be clear about that, because if we're going to successfully reduce the terrorist threat, then we need all the allies we can get. the folks who are most interested in a war between the united states or the west and islam are al qaeda. that's what they have been banking on. we want to be clear about who the enemy is here. it's a handful of a tiny, minority of people who are engaging in horrific acts. and have killed muslims more than anybody else. the other reason it's important for us to remember that is because we have got millions of muslim-americans, our fellow citizens in this country. they're going to school with our kids. they're our neighbors. they're our friends. they're our co-workers. and, you know, when we start acting as if their religion is somehow offensive, what are we saying to them? i've got muslims who are fighting in afghanistan. in the uniform of the united states armed services. they're out there, putting their li

, it turns out this is important to us. what i've said to prime minister netanyahu is that given so far the talks are moving forward in a constructive way, it makes sense to extend that moratorium so long as the talks are moving in a constructive way. because, ultimately, the way to solve these problems, is for the two sides to agree what's it going to be, israel? what's it going to be, the state of palestinian. and if you can get that agreement, then you can start constructing anything that the people of israel see fit. in undisputed areas. now, i think the politics for prime minister netanyahu are very difficult. his coalition, i think, there are a number of members of his coalition who said we don't want to continue this. and one of the things that i've said to president abbas is, you've got to show the israeli public that you are serious and constructive in these talks so that the politics for prime minister netanyahu, if he were to extend the settlements moratorium, would be a little bit easier. and, you know, one of the goals i think that i've set for myself and for my team is to

pelligrini who lost his house in the fire. gentlemen, first of all, thank you so much for being with us. it is so good to see you both okay and well. bob, let me start with you because as i read your story this morning, nothing short of remarkable. you were actually right next door to the explosion. you and your family are home and you're just watching a football game. tell me what you saw and what you heard. >> well what happened was the ground and the house just started shaking violently, not like an earthquake. it was just shaking and then we'd seen this huge orange plume about 100 feet high go up into the sky and i go, oh, man, it started to come down the street towards us and then shifted away from us. but you could start to feel the heat through the windows and i started to see my windows crack. i went over and felt the door, that wasn't hot yet but the window by the door was and all of a sudden we started getting smoke into the bay window as if the wood on the outside was catching fire. at that point we realized we had to get out. so, my wife, my son and my dog, we went out the b

find more democrats to come out. when you look at our poll, the folks that tell us they're not likely to vote, they actually approve of the president's job with 75% approval rating. these are minorities and young voters. they have no interest in this election, if they get interested, they could close that gap. >> how do you get them interested? >> look, that's what the president's trying to do. here's what's odd. turnout goes up, people get enthusiastic about voting when they're unhappy. this small slice of voters, it's only 10% of the electorate, they're happy with the president, they're happy with democrats so they don't see a reason to get off their keisters and go out and vote right now. maybe that will change, but i'll be honest, our pollsters tell us it's very unlikely. >> let's take a look at who voters want to control congress. and the poll shows there's a tie, 43% of all responders would like to see democrats hold congress, 43% would like to see republicans gain control of congress. but when you boil that down to likely voters, the republicans have a 9 point advantage. >> let
